In recent years are showing the benefits of Hyperthermia Oncology, a new cancer therapy improves the response to conventional treatments, immunity and decreases power side effects.

Oncologic hyperthermia is the controlled production of heat, always projected in areas where the malignant tumor is located. It is a complementary treatment to conventional treatments (the radiotherapy , chemotherapy and surgery). The aim of our center, MagnaClínic Marbella, is special attention on how to help patients with cancer; so we decided to incorporate a novel treatment in Spain: the Oncological Hyperthermia.

Oncologic hyperthermia is beginning to be seen in many countries as the "fourth pillar" in the treatment of cancer. In fact, this technique is used very commonly to treat tumors in areas like area head, breast, chest or digestive tumors such as, for example, pancreatic cancer, among other forms.

The main reason for using the oncologic hyperthermia is trying to get a higher cure rate with less toxicity than that obtained with conventional treatments. In short, the Oncological Hyperthermia can increase the benefits and reduce side effects of both chemotherapy and radiotherapy, and what is best, without causing increased toxicity
